Here is a fun, kid-friendly craft to do on a rainy day or a great gift to give Grandma when she comes to town for a visit!
What you need: a green piece of paper, a straw (one for every flower), stapler, scotch tape, muffin cups, and scissors
First, cut a two inch strip of paper for each flower you will be making.
Next, roll the paper around the straw.
Tape the edges of the paper to hold into place.
Staple 10 (more if you want a fuller-blossomed flower) to the end of the “stem.”
Separate the muffin cups to make the flower.
Pinch the middle muffin cup to the center, followed by the next muffin cup until you do all of them.
Cut out leaves from the leftover green paper.
Staple the leaves to the stem.
Enjoy your bouquet! If you are like my daughter, spray a couple of squirts of perfume onto the flower to make it smell lovely!
